Mirja must find her place in the world after having served a prison sentence. When she succeeds in getting a job as a hotel clerk, she begins to live a double life. She is torn between her sick mother and her old friends, who have been her real family. Dröm vidare has been described as a long-awaited knokout about friendship, loyalty, identity and class, while at the same time, realistic and dreamy. Moviezines Patrik Linderholm thinks "Young women appearing in such a spunky and yet vulnerable way is something that rarely appears in Swedish film. Add a fantastic role list with young as well as more established actresses - they all radiate, beyond Evin Ahmad, who undoubtedly shines in the starring role of Mirja. "
